Habitat for Humanity

Coordinator: Bill Mason

Flower City Habitat for Humanity is a non-denominational Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating substandard and poverty housing in Rochester, NY.

For more information, please visit their site: http://www.rochesterhabitat.org/

 

These are the homes we have sponsored to date, by year indicated. Each required our coalition to raise $65,000 and help provide volunteers to build the home. Each home was dedicated to the homeowner when it was complete. Each homeowner had to help build the home and attend classes that would help with budgeting, routine home maintenance, and other similar training sessions.  The  homeowner assumed a 20 year mortgage for the value of the home with monthly payments that they could meet, based on their family size, monthly income, etc. Currently, the existing mortgages are non-interest bearing. If you think you’d like to get involved in any way, please contact me at wmason@rochester.rr.com or 453-9038. I can always use someone to represent our church (the founding church) at meetings I’m not able to attend. Bill Mason


Current News:

HURRAH!!! The home on 126 Holworty St. is well on its way to completion. We have now scheduled a Dedication Ceremony for Saturday, April 18th, 1;00pm. The tentative move in date for the homeowner is May 1st. It’s been an unusually long process but our group has continued to work together to get to this point. We have raised all the funds necessary to sponsor this home ($65,000) and already have almost 35% towards our next home. Once we get through this dedication we will work with Flower City Habitat to when we can work with them on our 8th home.

The Dedication ceremony is always a special occasion as our committee and clergy from our churches participate along with the homeowner’s family and Habitat staff. We try to make it a meaningful experience including a blessing of the home and the family. Kiomy and her children have been a special family as she has accumulated many more hours than necessary. All are welcome to attend!

**Unfortunately, we have had to postpone the dedication ceremony scheduled for April 18th. We'll keep you posted when we can reschedule. Right now, we want to do what ever is best for the family.
